Pete, I really enjoyed your website. The relief prints were very ineresting, both in content and in technique. The other section of your site reminded me too much of my last 5 years in universtiy art classes to enjoy them as much.

Dale I got a kick our of your humorous prints.
And Peter, welcome, and without giving my bias away I can say that one of
my favorites is Apathy Kills.

Thank you to all who contributed to the TOH issue. I was happy to learn the
my double TOH is not a freak but a rare bird. I like it that way..

Tomorrow, thanks to Baren, I look forward to meeting Ellen Shipley at the
Los Angeles County Museum.
What a group!

Dear fellow forum members,

I've been on the forum for roughly a week now, and I thought it was time to introduce myself.

I first came upon the forum because I was looking for printmaking exchanges. I had taken part in one in Belgium in 2005 ( the images for 2005 don't seem to be up yet, at least not all of them) with a linoprint. I was very impressed by what I saw in the Baren exchange galleries.

I draw, paint and make etchings, but my linoprints are the reason I joined the Baren forum. I'm relatively new to linoprinting, though I'm wondering if eventually I might like to trade linoleum in for wood. I love the subtlety of woodblock printing done with watercolours and would like to know how this is done (does one use diluted watercolours or watercolours straight from the tube? And how do you keep them wet long enough for printing?)

Unfortunately, I presently don't have a relevant gallery to show you.

I hope to be able to take part in an exchange at some point. It's not clear to me if linoleum is permitted in all exchanges or only some.

Oh, yes, it might be relevant to know that I'm writing you from Leiden, in the Netherlands, and I'm a woman, for those of you who can't tell by my name!

Best regards,

Hanneke Spruijt-Teunissen

Thank you Mike,

Loved watching you ink up and see the automation you have for these big
paper sheets and how you handle them on your own. Great use of Time
and Motion Study except that your inks are so far behind you..... pity
they can't be somewhere on a shelf near the double doors while you are
printing..... just an observation.

I was particularly interested to see you don't use any printing
blankets. Does you paper ever stick to the roller ?

What an awesome print? Wow!! I would be smiling too if it were mine.

Baren Summit ----- But I am not smiling either as I have realised that
Uni commitments and our work placements for Art Therapy will be taking
priority over coming to Portland to the Baren Summit this year. I am
so disappointed as I have been looking forward to this since Kansas and
have only just realised that my Uni holidays don't coincide with
American holidays at this critical time.

I am sorry I will not be meeting many of you that I have been looking
forward to meeting and sharing woodblock printing for so many years
now. I certainly will be booking my place for the next Summit and
nothing will stop me next time.
